A growing body of medical research—including dozens of studies based at the Harvard Medical School—supports that Tai Chi mind-body exercise effectively improves balance and musculoskeletal strength, heart health, and psychological well being.
In this practical introductory workshop designed for beginners of all ages and stages of health, participants will learn a simplified and easy to learn Tai Chi training program as outlined in the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi (authored by Dr. Wayne, the workshop leader). Experiential sessions will be interspersed with presentations summarizing clinical and physiological research on the health benefits of Tai Chi. At the close of the workshop, participants will be advised on how to develop and integrate a regular practice of Tai Chi into their daily routines, and will receive a DVD and book reinforcing the materials taught in the workshop.
